This image shows a perspective view of the Deuteronilus Mensae region on Mars. It was taken on 14 March 2005 by the High-Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) onboard ESA’s Mars Express with a ground resolution of approximately 29 metres per pixel.
It is believed that the valleys visible in the image may have originated from intense flooding by melted water ice. The water then froze rather quickly and flowed down the slopes of the depression like a glacier.
The view has been calculated from the digital terrain model derived from the stereo channels.
